That procedure is as follows: To be permitted, bags will be clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC and not exceed 12"x6"x12". Small bags do not need to be clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC only if they do not exceed 4.5"x6.5".

Greetings Bulls,

If you have not heard our terrific band, or watched our cheerleaders, football team or volleyball team this year... you are missing out! Bring your family and come out to support our student-athletes and coaches. They spend countless hours preparing and training to excel in the classroom and on the field/court. Please purchase tickets online at and keep in mind the clear bag and security screening policies that HCS has in effect, so you don't miss a minute of the action. As always, thank you for supporting our HCMS community. It is a wonderful school because of your involvement and support. 

Natalie Smih
Go Bulls!
